Arizona Falls to BYU for Second Day in a Row

TUCSON -- A five-run rally in the sixth inning Tuesday broke a deadlock and lifted BYU to an 8-1 victory over the University of Arizona.

The Cougars, now 2-4, scored eight unanswered runs in beating the Wildcats, 4-4, for the second day in a row.

Freshman Kainoa Obrey hit a three-run homer to right field in the sixth inning with two outs to score Michael Davies and Matt Carson.

Nate Mathis started the sixth inning with a lead-off single to center and advanced on Shane Belliston's sacrifice bunt. DJ Jackson struck out looking. Then Nick Day hit an RBI double to right field. Day scored off Davies' single to left field. Davies stole second base and Carson walked before Obrey's homer.

Day and Obrey were the only Cougars who had two hits. Day and Davies were the only BYU players to score two runs.

Arizona's lone run came in the second inning when it took the lead after Ernie Durazo singled in Rob Shabansky, who had gotten on with a double off winning pitcher Micah Mangrum.

BYU is now idle until it travels next week to play a three-game series at third-ranked Alabama on Feb. 10-12.
